Windows 7: Hard disk partition not shown after System restore

Hard disk partition not shown after System restore

I am currently working on windows 7, and I restored my system using "system restore". Previously, I had two partitions of hard disk namely C and E. Now I can't see the E drive in "My Computers", however it is still visible in Disk Management. But when I right click on the E drive only "help" option is shown.

How do I access the "E" drive. Any help would be hugely appreciated
